    He looks like an older dandy. Which, as far as I can tell, is what he is. *shrug*

    Part of the reason he is able to get away with a straighter pant fit without his cuffs swallowing his shoes (and looking quite dated) is that his legs appear to be rail-thin. If someone with an ass (like me) wore a straight-leg trouser like that, the leg opening would positively billow.

    Hmm, ok. Thank you guys. I appreciate your feedback. I can't say that I'm really fond of the idea of a slim cuffed pant either though as to how fashion forward it is right now and I would imagine it will fall out. I'm also not extremely fond of no break. I guess I thought I slight break cuffed was a bit more timeless and not dependant upon so many variables.

    I’m not a fan of that pic for multiple reasons. I generally like the monochromatic look (and frequently wear it myself) but I don’t like that combination. And yes, his trousers look age appropriate, but I’m not his age and I wouldn’t wear them.

    I have several pairs of Jort trousers and really like them, but I know they’re not to everyone’s taste. I work on Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan and see guys in everything from Combatant Gentlemen to Kiton. Right now, unless you’re making a fashion-forward choice, cuffs look a bit old-fashioned. Put another way, go badass or go home.

    Cuffs offer a significant advantage in terms of drape. I like my cuffs at 1.5 inches because of my average height and full body type. I do not like my suit trousers cuffed as a general rule, but I like most of my wool/corduroy trousers with cuffs. With a narrow opening (8.6 inches and below, for my frame), and no/slight break they look good IMO. Butler's outfit would look awesome on anybody regardless of age.

    I ended up getting the straight tailored fit, 16" opening, in light heather grey and also the slim, 14.5" opening, in Prince of Wales. I'll cuff the slim.... going badass .

    I know they're poly blended, but I can't really afford 100% flannel trousers. I would rather put the money elsewhere. And for $23 a piece I can't really complain!
